Dear members,

The following is an announcement regarding registration for the 25th JASID Spring Conference to be held at Utsunomiya University. We look forward to your participation.

The deadline for early registration, which offers a discounted rate, is 15 May (Wednesday). Registration will continue to be open up to the day of the event for those who miss this deadline.

Receipts for payment can be downloaded by selecting “Receipt Download” after logging into the registration site. It’s important to either print this receipt or have the registration confirmation email available to show at the conference venue for check-in purposes. Please ensure you keep this documentation safe for reference. You can display it on your smartphone or bring a printed copy. Receipt issuance will be available until the end of July.

2. Regarding Social Gatherings and Excursions

On the day of the conference, 15 June (Saturday), from 19:00 to 20:30, we will host a social gathering for attendees to exchange ideas and foster networking. There will be awards ceremony and performances of a local African drum group Jambo Ichikai in the gathering.

If you have specific dietary requirements, such as vegan, halal, or any allergies, please do not hesitate to inform us. Due to logistical considerations, registration and payment for the social gathering need to be completed by 15 May (Wednesday), alongside your early conference registration. Please use the registration link provided above to finalize your participation.

The following two excursions are prepared on this occasion, both unique to Tochigi, and providing experiences that you can’t get as a tourist and only through arrangement by specialists:

  • Option 1: “Thinking about development through the Ashio Copper Mine Issue”
  • Option 2: “Exploring Japan’s Pioneer LRT and the Concept of a Compact City”

We encourage you to register for excursions simultaneously with your early conference registration. Further information regarding the excursions will be shared in due course.

3. Additional Information

Detailed information on necessary accommodations, infectious disease prevention measures, and the availability of nursery facilities will be provided separately to ensure your participation is comfortable and safe.

The Utsunomiya University Manabinomori Nursery School, located on campus, offers same-day after-school care for children from ages 0 to 6th grade. More details on this service will be shared in the near future.
The conference program will be made available by 1 May (Wednesday).
